Both Lauren and I got this in our email today:

Now, since I OWN liquidillusions.net, I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’m not cutting off my own email account because I’ve been naughty. This is pretty similar to what [H]ardOCP was getting this week. (link). This is really a pretty sad and pathetic move by lame-ass virus script kiddies. They’re banking on the small 1% of the population that doesn’t have contact with their mail provider. Seriously, how many folks out there that own their own domain names are getting these? You can’t honestly tell me that people are saying to themselves “gee, I don’t remember shutting off my own email, I’d better open up the attachment and see why.” This is really aimed at those poor folks who get mail through random bulletin board, fan sites, game sites, that sort of thing. Some place they might not be technically involved with. I would like to think that in most large office settings people would at least pick up the phone and ask the IT department what’s up. I would really like to think that. But I personally know a few people who, even if Norton AV tells them it’s infected, will open questionable email just because they’re curious or want to be sure.
Oi. What a sad world we live in where a man’s own domain is trying to shut him down. Sad, sad world.
It’s 12:20am here in Texas. I can’t sleep. I’ve taken two Tylenol PMs because I hate taking sleeping pills. They make me drowsy and grumpy the next day. Tylenol just get’s rid of headaches for me. Anyway, I’m just rambling on. There really isn’t much going on. Work has been pretty steady lately. Lots of pageant headshots and that sort of thing. There’s about 100 girls in the Miss Houston pageant and we’re expecting 40 or so of them to get their picture taken with us. We’ve also had some free time towards the end of the work day, as I’ve mentioned before, to play a bit of Desert Combat. I’ve even found a clan I can play with down here. I’m thinking about joining the Texas Combat Crew if they’ll have me. The server is here in Houston and they’re in at least one major tournament a month. These guys really hold their own and are extremely highly ranked in nation ladders. 6th in the country I believe. At least acording to SquadGames.
I think the Tylenol is kicking in. I’m getting tired. It’s probably a good time to go back to sleep.
Lastly. Is anyone else excited about Moveable Type 3.0?It’s going to have comment registrations… isn’t that cool! Now you can all have an account and I won’t have to worry about comment spam anymore. Sweet.
Which reminds me… if I just banned your ass, as I did to someone a few minutes ago… you can go strait to the fires below. You IP is banned, you domain is banned, hell, even the content you were trying to drivel on about has been banned. Your ass is mine. And if I see it again… your ISP is getting a call. I’m done messing with you little shits. You may slip one by my filters here and there but it’s only a small victory until I check my email, get the notice and fire up BlackList.
Yeah baby. The drugs are definatly working. Aren’t posts like this fantastic? It’s completely incoherent. Huzah.
That’s it. I’m going to bed before I butcher the english launguage any further.
That’s it! I’m smashing your email to bits! Smash smash smash!
Wait.. Foop. And parp too.
How’s that for late night incoherency?
Huzah – did I tell you that I think I’m addicted to Pirates of the Carribbean? Savvy?
You know what? my familly has AOL (yeah, I know, I know…), and let me tell you, they are *great* at getting rid of malicious spam. I cringe thinking about the problems I’d have to fix if they got all the email that they would get without AOL screening emails…
If you have newbies in the family, and don’t want to worry about evil spam (or fixing the damage that is caused by it), I can’t believe I am saying this, but I recommend AOL.
That, or get them all on Macs 😉
Your puny windows virii can’t hurt me! I don’t understand your executable bytecode! buahaha! behold the mighty powerbook!
Hows that for mid-day incoherency?
“That, or get them all on Macs ;)”
Hmmmm – yeah, Mary’s school is all Macs, and they are always telling me how great they are, and they don’t need virus protection etc. etc. So who gets (and passes on) a virus – Mary, that’s who!
Long live PC’s – at least we don’t live in make-believe land! (and…try and get decent data aquisition and analysis software for a Mac – you can’t.)
Chipsdad steps off his soapbox.
What does plah stand for when signing an email?
wow… a bit behind aren’t we in the comments there Jenny. Not that you’ll actually read this, but “plah” is more of a general term of discontent. Like, when old men say “Bah” and wave you away. Or when someone crosses their arms and says “Hmph”. Something like that. Conversely, it’s also used to express a blank space or any none important information filled. “Blah, Blah, Blah” is a good example. So, saying “plah” in a conversation could be used as a replacement for an “unconfortble silence” or simply a reply if the reply isn’t nessisary in the first place. As for it’s placement at the end on an email. I can only guess that it would be used as “ok, I’m done”. Other than that, you’re own your own.
